Rotary International has a High School Youth Exchange Program that sponsors high school juniors and seniors to study abroad for one school year. The 61 Rotary Clubs in Colorado’s Rotary District 5450 (north-central Colorado) sponsored 17 inbound students from around the world this school year and are hosted by Rotary families as well as others in their respective communities.
As part of their introduction to Colorado and its amazing outdoor wonders, the students are offed an opportunity hike to a peak along the Continental Divide.
In early August, Rotarians from Littleton and Summit County joined forces with Friends of the Dillon Ranger District and community volunteers to restore the stairway leading to the overlook at the top of Loveland Pass. The stairway project is part of a greater effort to enhance the visitor experience to Loveland Pass and the adjacent trails leading to significant mountains on both sides of the Pass. A Rotary Trail Steward program was initiated so that visitors to Loveland Pass may have someone there to answer questions, provide trail maps, offer ice water to cyclists and other visitors, and take family pictures. Rotarians volunteer as Trail Stewards on select days throughout the travel season.
 
 
The days and years fly by and we cannot let them pass without saying thank you to one of our stalwarts, Dr. Merl (Doc) Jacobsen.  For his decades of service in his vocation as well as in Rotary he has received the Service Above Self Lifetime Honorary Membership in the Rotary Club of Littleton.
 
Newer members will not have known Doc when he was club President, 1982-83, or when he led the significant Project C.U.R.E Capital Campaign to purchase their world headquarters and warehouse.

Club President Belinda "B" Bianchi presents Douglas County Deputy Sheriff Michael Doyle with Vocational Service Award.
The members of the Rotary Club of Littleton gathered at a recent special evening meeting to honor a member of the Douglas County Sheriff's Department, Deputy Michael Doyle. On December 31, 2017, Michael and four other deputies were first responders to a 911 domestic violence call. The results were tragic for all involved.
 
Student volunteers at Arty's Friday Food Bag storage facility with program member, Bobbie McCombs
 
During a PTO meeting back in 2012 at Centennial Academy of Fine Arts Education (formerly known as Centennial Elementary), concern was raised about the growing number of students whose only regular meals were those lunches provided by the school. Many of those students had very little food over the weekends and started the school week famished.
On the second Monday of each month, Littleton Rotary members volunteer at Project C.U.R.E. headquarters sorting donated new and surplus medical items. Those items are then boxed, palletised, and readied for shipment to clinics and hospitals in some of the world’s most critical areas. Teams of highly trained Project C.U.R.E. specialists travel to areas of need and do on-site evaluations. Once the evaluation of needs are completed, Project C.U.R.E. works to prepare the shipment and secures funding for transport.
Littleton Rotary spearheaded the fundraising effort that ultimately lead to the purchase of Project C.U.R.E’s. world headquarters located in Centennial, CO.
